#DrawAWookie from #TOYSREVILART for #StarWarsDay 2018


(Original Instagrammed Here)

My humble lil'contribution to Star Wars Day: A doodle of a fictional Wookie Jedi! Count this in my (formerly) annual #DrawAWookie illustration celebration, which has since tapered off for lack of participation, alas .. but keeping the Star Wars Spirit "alive" here in this lil'corner of my fanboy-fantasy-world :)

Regardless, May The 4th Be With You All!

Cheers
